Dear ESS experts,

I've always been using emacs as an editor and recently I started to work with 
R, therefore I would be very happy to be able to use the functionality of ESS.

I don't have my own linux computer but I use machines on a farm, so I don't 
have access to the installation of emacs or R.
The linux distribution installed is:

Distributor ID: RedHatEnterpriseServer
Description:    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.11 (Tikanga)
Release:        5.11
Codename:       Tikanga

I tried to install ESS in my home and to compile it, but I get this errors:

|=> ls
COPYING    Makeconf    VERSION  ess-autoloads.el  install-sh     
ChangeLog  Makefile  RPM.spec     debian   etc               lisp           test
LDA        OONEWS  doc      fontlock-test     mkinstalldirs
|=> make
cd etc; make all
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/giovannp/ess/ess-16.10/etc'
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/giovannp/ess/ess-16.10/etc'
cd lisp; make all

emacs -batch -no-site-file -no-init-file -l ./ess-comp.el -f batch-byte-compile 
loading 'ess-compat ..
loading 'ess-custom ..
Symbol's function definition is void: defvaralias
make[1]: *** [ess-custom.elc] Error 255
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/giovannp/ess/ess-16.10/lisp'
make: *** [all] Error 2

The functionality I mostly need is the text highlighting, is there somethink I 
can do?
